    December 5, 2020 - Agree with prior outstanding on point remarks below. Gave Williams Selyem Estate a tasting run for the money (absolutely loved both :-p ).

    September 22, 2017 - A beautiful and magnificent pinot noir. It is hard to imagine another embodiment of this varietal that could be better. We are ao sad this was the last bottle.

    May 10, 2015 - We got this bottle in March, 2012 from Lynmar’s wine club. The bouquet is mostly dark fruit and oak, with secondary elements of earth, spices, and a slight floral character.
    This is a rich, dark, creamy, smooth, delicious Sonoma Coast Pinot (Lynmar’s Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs from the Terra De Promissio vineyard are ALWAYS fantastic). As the bouquet suggested, this is indeed a mostly black/dark-fruited Pinot (which is pretty normal for Sonoma Coast Pinots), displaying elements of plums and blackberries, along with all of the usual oaky elements (richness, creaminess, along with a hint of a suggestion of a rumor of vanilla). I’m assuming/guessing that this wine was fermented in barrel based on the rich, creamy, silky texture. Along with the fruit profile, there’s also a savory herb and spice element, especially thyme, rosemary, sage, and black pepper. The wine’s structure is gorgeously well-balanced, exhibiting nicely-coordinated tannins and acidity that pair beautifully with the wine’s other flavor elements. Despite being rich and creamy (which often results in NON-food-friendliness), the acidity and tannins make this wine very food-friendly. This wine would pair well with just about any red meat dish, along with being a PERFECT accompaniment to duck confit, seared duck breast, and/or a perfectly-cooked prime rib, rib eye steak, as well as just about any lamb dish (rack of, chops, shanks, etc.). I paired this wine with an ox tail ragu, which wasn’t a PERFECT pairing, but it did go well with the ox tail’s rich, creamy essence.
    This wine is drinking perfectly-well right now and should continue to age and mature nicely for another five years or so. If you like rich, creamy, delicious, complexly-flavored Sonoma Coast Pinots that pair well with red meats, this beauty’s difficult to beat. Yes, I’ve had better, but this Bad Boy is one delicious beauty!!
